With the ever-increasing use of computers in people's lives some people suggest that online learning will replace traditional places of learning like universities while others say that this will never happen. Contrast online learning with learning at universities.
Online Learning vs. Traditional Learning
Will traditional learning institutions like universities ever be supplanted by computer-based education such as distant-learning as some people predict? Personally, I believe that traditional methods of teaching and online learning both have advantages and disadvantages.
Some people claim that there are a number of virtues entailed in computer-based learning, For example, students do not have to travel to and fro on a dally basis; instead, they can devote their traveling time to study more. In addition, computers furnish an even richer variety of choices so that pupils do not have tobe restrained to study subjects arbitrarily chosen by their universities or teachers. However, others argue that the significance of education carried out in traditional places has stood the test of time. This time-honoured practice should not be eradicated by the advent of the digital era. Furthermore, there are some advantages of traditional education which cannot be challenged by computer-based ones. For instance, at university, each student can receive a tailored education according to his or her aptitude whereas computer-based education inevitably tends to generalize students' collective performance.
许多人认为网上学习有许多好处，例如，学生不用每天来回奔波上学，反之，他们的路上时间也可以用来学习。此外，网上学习为学生提供更多的选择，所以，学生将不会再被限制学习课程，这些课程都是大学或老师为学生选择的 。但是，其他人认为传统的学习方法是经过时间检验的 。这样的学习方法不能够因为电子时代的到来而遭到消除 。此外，传统学习法也有许多优点，这些是网上学习所不具备的 。例如在大学，学生的教育都是根据学生自身的能力而定的 。但是，网上教育产生的是学生的集体表现 。
In summary, on account of the aforementioned points,I believe that traditional methods of learning and online learning have their merits and demerits and that, at the end of the day, it is up to the student to choose his own preferred method of learning.
1.In many aspects,traditional education is superior to online learning.
2.Online learning is gaining ascendancy in recent years.
3.In comparison,online learning is not as effective as learning at university.
4.Admittedly, computer-based education may appeal to certain people.
5.All in all,at least at this stage,the possibility that online learning will evolve into the dominant form of education is highly unlikely.
